Dan is a really good guy. I worked next to him for several years. He was there when I first heard Danny Gregory speak at a HOW conference in Atlanta in 2007, kicking off my sketchbook-keeping habit. (He was also a much better sketcher at that point.)
Dan is also completely obsessed with fantasy football. We never have any money on the line, but he treats it as though he’d lose his house if he didn’t win. He’s brought home three of the nine championships our league has awarded, including last year’s. He’s a huge Broncos fan, see, and he cashed in big on Peyton Manning’s monstrous season. This year, though, I’m gonna have to bring him down.
